Thank you Beverly,
Lets hope so when I get them to the Christmas markets!! It's a very
mixed clientelle here as I am based in the country so I have clients
who don't want well dressed just tough and cheap and then some that are
more chic and like something they can't find anywhere else.
What I do find here in France is that I am apreciated more as an
Artisan, customers like the fact that they have met the person that
designed and made the item ( It's the same with the statues) and that
most of what I make is a one off. In the Uk I found for me that it was
harder to get a good price for handmade items. It did seem to be an
attitude well if you made it I could to so why so expensive!
Fingers crossed with the boys outfits. My customers buy more easily for
girls than boys. Aprons are going very well at the moment, and they are
both girl and boy design. It's not a cliché that the French still love
